Thieves take $25 grand in merchandise from Laurel business

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

A Laurel man walked into his business Wednesday morning to find at least $25,000 worth of items taken from his shop.

“Laurel Police received a call from 608 Cross Street to a place of business being Strickly Biziness in reference to a commercial burglary,” said Laurel Detective Kim Stewart. “The suspects took several car stereo equipment, car keys along with rims and other items.”

Detective Stewart said he is reviewing surveillance video inside the business along with nearby businesses and gas stations.

“I advice the suspect who did this to turn themselves in, eventually we will catch you,” said Stewart.

The owner of the business said this is the second time his business has been broken into.

“It's kind of hard for you to sleep at night not knowing when this might happen again,” said Karl Rogers. “The sooner we apprehend these people the sooner we can get back to a place of normalcy in our community.”

According to Rogers, when he arrived to his business he noticed a hole on the fence, his back door propped open and his office door unlocked.

Any information regarding the burglary or any suspicious activity, you are asked to call the Laurel Police Department.
